Dental Smiles Storytime

Dental Smiles Storytime

Dental Smiles BooklistSay CHEEEEEESE! This week the storytimes at HRLS will discuss all things teeth! We'll look at everything from dentists to brushing, and even those wobbly loose teeth. Head over for some fun stories to teach children more about their pearly whites and search our catalog for the tag: #pearlywhites to bring some great books home!

Here are some "teethrific" tunes and rhymes to help reinforce dental health. 

This Is The Way
(Tune: The Mulberry Bush)
This is the way we brush our teeth,
Brush our teeth, brush our teeth
This is the way we brush our teeth
So early in the morning

(floss our teeth, rinse our teeth)

Five Little Germs
(Tune: Five Little Ducks)
Five little germs went out to play,
In a child’s mouth one day,
They had so much fun inside,
Until we flossed and then one died.


No little germs are in my mouth,
Because I went and flossed them out
Now when the dentist looks inside
No little germs are left to hide.
Brush, brush, brush your Teeth 
(Tune: Row, row, row your Boat)
Brush, brush, brush your teeth.
At least two times a day.
Cleaning, cleaning, cleaning, cleaning,
Fighting tooth decay.

Floss, floss, floss your teeth.
Every single day.
Gently, gently, gently, gently,
Whisking Plaque away.

Rinse, rinse, rinse your teeth
Every single day.
Swishing, swishing, swishing, swishing,
Fighting tooth decay. 

Five Little Teeth
There were five little teeth
in my teeny tiny mouth
I pulled and I twisted and one popped out

Now there are four little teeth . . . 
(continue counting down)

My Dentist 
(Tune: Frere Jacques )
My Dentist, repeat
Always Tells me, repeat
Brush your teeth, repeat
Twice a day. Repeat 
Always Floss, repeat
Every day. Repeat
Keep your teeth healthy. repeat
Your smile is great! Repeat
